DIAMOND VALLEY JUNIORS v EPPING [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser — 14 June 1940
DIAMOND VALLEY JUNIORS v EPPING With ,the wet dismal conditions adverse for good football, Epping continued. their winning run- at Din- mond Creek last Saturday. The home side won the toss and kicked with the wind, but Epping opened the scoring with a nice shot from Paulka. Almost *immediately afterwards, however, the Juniors re plied with twvo goals fromn Bob Laurie, their captain. The rain and wind spoiled the play and the game quickly developed into a scramble, both teams wildly trying to kick off the ground. The greasy ball often evaded their attempts. Ep ping were better in the air and made the most qf their opportunities. At the first change the scores were: Diamond Valley Juniors 3-5; Epping 2-4: Considering they were kicking against the wind, the visitbrs' score was very satisfactory. In the second term the Epping team adapted themselves better to the conditions, and, having the ad vahtage of the wind, forged ahead. Welsh and W. Paulka were doing fine work on the forward lin...

Yielding Gates NEW SAFETY DEVICE IN U.S.A. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser — 21 June 1940
Yielding Gates 'NEW SAFETY DEVICE IN U.S.A. DESIGNED to do away with serious accidents resultilig from vehicles striking gates closing the road, yield. Ing barrier gates have' been intro. duced in U.S.A. The design is knowvn as the Sawyer gate. The gate is a flexible structure of flexible uprights painted for easy vis ibility and held on strong horizontal cables. Should a vehicle crash the gate, the cables are paid out against a progressively increasing resistance to overcome the .impact load as rapidly as is consistent with safety. The brakes are set automatically when the. gate is lowered from' its overhead "open" position,. and the braking action is started withiln 1/100th of a second after impact. The gates are made in three types, capable respectively of stopping a 12,0001b,, a 20,0001b or a 40,0001b truck at 20 mp.h. in a distance of 14 feet, or 4/10th second, which is faster than the time taker. for the driver to get his foot on the pedal after seeing danger ahead.

One large tree on Miss I-Iorner's property was planted exactly-50 years before it was felled. Its butt meas ured more than two feet in diameter. The bare spaces left are ti pathetic reminder of greater days!

ELTHAM CLUB NOTES [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser — 21 June 1940
ELTHAM CLUB NOTES It is expected that last Saturday's' game will be Len Forde's last with` the team for some time as he has joined the A:I.F. Len makes the third player to enlist, the others being Bill Broes 'and Austin Roach. and '?heir comrades wish them the best of luck and a safe return. The team has reason to be proud of their fine win against Heidelberg who are always a hard nut to crack on their own ground, and all realise that their improvement in recent games has been the result, of, sound coaching and persistent training. Speaking of training, we are wonder ing. if 'a certain player had this in mind when he was carried on to Dia mond Creek in the last, train one night' this week. The mention of trains reminds of another, player who is too fast for his opponents on the field, but in catching trains his per formances are not so hot. "Bub" Hughes will be available td-morrow and his inclusion will greatly strengthen the back line.
